The drama of nature’s untamed splendor offers adventure and excitement in Kentucky’s Daniel Boone Country.  Whether your brand of fun is high impact adventure or a relaxed retreat, we can show you how to make the most of your visit in Kentucky’s grand outdoors.

Stay in the lodge or a cabin at Cumberland Falls State Park, Kentucky and thrill to the thundering beauty of the “Niagara of the South.” Backpack into the mountains on one of our overnight camping trails and enjoy prime Daniel Boone National Forest camping, take a kayak ride on the Cumberland River below the falls, explore the Big South Fork and Cumberland Rivers by canoe or view the falls from a scenic overlook

Learn the ropes on rock climbing walls or take a "real deal" rock climbing course at Torrent Falls. Wheel your way along the ATV trails of the Black Mountain Off-road Adventure Park or enjoy a relaxed scenic drive along mountain by-ways.  The Cumberland Gap, the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Red River Gorge and  Natural Bridge are awe-inspiring works of nature.

Enjoy country music, comedy and live entertainment at the “Grand Ole Opry of Kentucky” in Renfro Valley and don’t miss the center’s next door neighbor the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Discover original arts and crafts created by Kentucky artists at the Swift Creek Arts & Crafts Gallery and explore our many historic sites and museums including the cabin of Dr Thomas Walker who led the first expedition through the Cumberland Gap in 1750.  

Camp out or explore our scenic region from the comfort of your cabin, lodge or motel room. With five beautiful scenic and historic parks such as Cumberland Falls State Park, Kentucky Daniel Boone Country offers recreational fun and a variety of affordable lodging, shopping and dining options.
